Lakefront House on Seneca Lake

Bedrooms 4
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

This inviting lakefront home is perfect for families. The large, private, fenced in yard keeps toddlers from going to the lake. The porch swing on the deck is a great place to watch awesome sunsets.

The house has spacious rooms and comfortable furniture. The great room has a fireplace and built in bookshelves that are full of books, videos, DVD’s and games. Cable TV and wireless internet are available too. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, utensils and small appliances, but no dishwasher. The table in the dining area off the great room seats 8. Sunny breakfasts are delightful on the cozy, knotty pine porch.

The upstairs has 3 bedrooms with views of the lake; one has 2 antique twins; another has a queen and 2 twins. The third is a small bedroom with 1 twin bed. The downstairs bedroom has a double bed and is near the bathroom. The Bunkhouse has been remodeled and is now available as extra sleeping space. It has it’s own powder room and a set of bunk beds, but is not winterized.

The new stairs to the lake are lit with solar lamps. Our 100 feet of waterfront includes a deck, a 50 ft long L shaped dock, and a swimming beach. You can use the canoe and swim to the raft (note - raft available between Memorial Day and Labor Day). The lake is about 5 ft. deep at the raft. Seneca Lake has excellent fishing and boating, with marina’s nearby to rent all types of boats. Cookout on the gas grill and roast marshmallows on the firepit. There is parking for 3 cars.

If you've been here as a guest of our renter, please mention it to us if you want to rent it yourself.

About Chris Carson

Chuck spent every summer on Seneca Lake as a child and we have emotional ties to this property. Our family loves to gather here, play in the water, and make memories. We enjoy the peace and beauty of the lake and surrounding vineyards. We like to get to know our renter's who we share our house with.

Chris Carson purchased this house in 2008

Thanksgiving get away

  • 5 of 5

Great house with plenty of room and amenities. Lots of books and games to occupy the time stuck indoors. Enough to do to where we only used the TV once. Great "farm" style table to accommodate everyone. Would recommend this rental to all my friends and family and would love to visit again. Awesome place Mr. and Mrs. Carson. Thanks again.

Wonderful home, wonderful owners! So very comfortable. An additional bath in the main house would be an asset! We would certainly recommend your property. Your neighbors were most pleasant, a nice plus!

Thank you for a home-like stay for our son's graduation from Hobart! We actually stayed at your home in May of 2010, but couldn't put that into the calendar. Think we were the second renters! We would not hesitate to visit again as we so enjoyed the beautiful views and amenities you so graciously provided! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. We do remember your visit. That was quite awhile ago! You wouldn't believe all the improvements we have made since. Regarding having an extra bathroom in the main house... we considered adding one when we did the renovations, but decided instead to use the space upstairs for a small child's bedroom. The extra 1/2 bath in the Bunk House is available from April through early Nov. Regarding being "pet friendly". We were for a few years, but no longer offer that for our renters. Thanks again for the positive review. Please come visit us again. Chuck and Chris.

First, I would like to thank the owners, as they have done an awesome job in maintaining the property. Super clean, open feel and what not. Some of the antiques (like the electric stove) added so much character to the home. I had my family visiting me from India, and they were really amazed to stay in such a beautiful house. And I must appreciate the attention to detail that the owners paid to and wrote small notes for us at every little spot where we might have had any difficulty. The house was well stocked with every necessary item of daily use such as paper towels, toilet papers, enough linen etc. Also owners are available through phone all the time in case you have any last minute questions. In total it was an amazing vacation that we had at this house and would look forward to staying here again.

Three Brothers Winery and Estates

Located in the heart of the Finger Lakes, we are surrounded by wonderful wineries, open all year round. We are less than an hour to Watkins Glen for hiking the gorge and for racecar enthusiasts. Canandaigua and Ithaca offer artsy shopping and theater. Other attractions are the Performing Arts Center in Canandaigua, the National Women’s Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, and the Waterloo Outlet Mall. In the winter, it is a short drive to Bristol Mt. for skiing, or to Rochester or Syracuse.
